Multiple Shadow Clone Technique
- It was actually never said that he created it, but came to possess it. In any case it is possible to be able to teach something in principle and not be able to perform it yourself. And there's always the possibility that more that one person contributed to the scroll.--Cerez365™ 11:54, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Well, since he had the scroll and was a 2nd Hokage, it's likely he knew how to perform it since Shadow Clone Technique is a common Jounin one, but he was never seen using it nor it was said to be a signature ability of his. --Elveonora (talk) 16:15, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Unique Ability Addition
Shouldn't Tailed Beast Control be added as a unique ability of his? I can't recall there being anything that said that his ability to do so stemmed from Wood Release.
- It stems from his Wood Release kekkei genkai, so it should already be mentioned there. Though I might've misinterpreted what you mean.--Cerez365™ 17:34, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
Other than that technique, do you know if that was specifically stated anywhere? Just wondering. The second paragraph of his Nature Transformation section also seems to be referring to it as a distinct ability of his as well, if I'm reading it correctly. Oh, and by adding it, I meant to the unique ability part of his infobox. Like how the Ultimate Summoning Animal has chakra absorption in its. Skitts (talk) 17:39, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
- Ah I was searching for it. It's chapter 291 pages 15 onwards in orochimaru's dialogue. Though I think we might need a direct translation, I don't think the two abilities are mutually exclusive although he does say gift(s).--Cerez365™ 17:47, January 22, 2012 (UTC)
I've just spotted a set of swords and a giant shuriken, possibly fuma shuriken, in this picture. He seems to have used them during his fight against Madara. Should we list him as a user of said weapons and add an equipment section? --126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:24, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
- It's a game though. They're allowed creative license. He's already been tagged as a sword user.--Cerez365™ 22:13, February 26, 2012 (UTC)
Sentence Mash up
In the introduction to Hashirama's Abilities section, there's a rather odd sentence that doesn't sound like it's written correctly:
"Kabuto commented that Hashirama is stronger than Madara Uchiha and the union between the two of them, and that his might was so vast that there weren't any shinobi in the current era that could match his level of power but also that many considered his prowess to be a mere fairy tale much like the existence of the Sage of the Six Paths."
Namely, when I read the first part about the "union between the two of them", it sounds like it's saying that Kabuto said that even after the union of his DNA into Madara's own, that Hashirama was still superior. Really, the whole sentence (which seems too long for a single one) is rather odd to me. Mind if I edit it to make it flow better? Skitts (talk) 18:54, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
Uhm i recently saw on Youtube an OVA showing Hashirama and Madara's fight which is a reward of sorts in the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Generation. Should it be considered canon on some way? I ask because it had then fight and do some techniques, soo any opinions? Darksusanoo (talk) 23:42, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
- I think OVA stuff would fall under anime only but if it's part of the game then it's game only. A user was adding him to a few of them yesterday I believe so it should be fine.--Cerez365™ 23:48, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

I remember reading that these original animation scenes are for the games story mode. According to Saiyan Island this is one of those cutscenes. Tobi/Madara is one of the playable characters for story mode, so maybe it's one of his cutscenes? I even if it isn't, I think it was just made for fun and shouldn't be taken seriously. They even made of Itachi vs Kisame and Sage Mode Naruto and Sasuke for the game.--Deva 27 00:20, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
Well, if it appears in anime later as an expansion of the fight scene then I guess it should be given some canonical credibility just like the Anko receiving Curse Mark scene. --Elveonora (talk) 00:51, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
Not actually a legacy
The current section about the Legacy of Hashirama Senju [] is very awkward. Of the 5 paragraphs, only the last one actually talks about something that Hashirama Senju left behind. The other 4 talk about how people coveted his powers and performed genetic manipulation to get said powers.
The dictionary defines legacy as:
- An amount of money or property left to someone in a will.
- (a) Anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. (b) Something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past. (c) Something handed down by a predecessor. (d) Something that is a part of your history or which stays from an earlier time. (e) Something such as a tradition or problem that exists as a result of something that happened in the past. (f) Something that someone has achieved that continues to exists after they stop working or die.
As you can see, the majority of that section doesn't fit the section heading. You wouldn't say that the legacy of Orochimaru's parents are Orochimaru's experiments. Or that the Yondaime's legacy is the hatred that the villagers have/had for his son. So...shouldn't this be split into 2 sections?--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 17:14, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
- Although definitions C-F basically defines everything in Hiashirama's legacy section, I don't see a need to be so technical. I'm not too sure why you'd even want to bring this up. A legacy is anything that a person leaves behind- simple enough; the section is being used for post-death events, that's all.--Cerez365™ 17:18, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
- Actually, the primary meaning of the word legacy is synonymous to inheritance. The secondary meaning basically tells you how legacy differs from inheritance. I've put definitions A--F together from a few online dictionaries...and you are right that they all convey the thought that it is something that Hashirama Senju left behind (in this context). Except that the only persons that Hashirama Senju left his DNA to are his children and grandchildren. His enemies have stolen his DNA to get his powers. I don't think that legacy is the right word to use. But if you rename the section to After Death there wouldn't be a problem either.--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 19:37, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
- The word 'legacy' is not just what you physically or genetically leave behind after your death, it is also how the people think of you after your death. Everything that is in the Legacy section fits the word perfectly fine. I see no reason to chance the title. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 19:53, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
- @ShounenSuki: I put the dictionary entry in for a reason. It doesn't mention physically or genetically. Neither do I(!). The only thing that actually fits the section title is the Will of Fire bit. And I didn't dispute that(!).
- Furthermore, if you read the secondary meanings, definitions A--C are remarkably similar to Hiden. Definitions D--E form a more generational definition of the word. Definition F is a mix of the other two.
- Which means that you're wrong; you're confusing it with public perception (which I admit can influence how people think about your legacy). The Will of Fire is a philosophy that Hashirama left behind---his legacy---but it doesn't mean that everyone values that philosophy.
- Basically, if Hashirama had made a clone of himself it could be his legacy. If someone else makes a clone of you, it's not your legacy. You could think of your own children as your legacy, but you don't think of your own corpse as your legacy. In this case everything is even worse, because those people used his DNA---his powers---to fight against everything he stood for. They were the opposite of the Will of Fire. I can't be more clear than that.--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 22:09, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Like I think I said before, your nitpicking over what the word "legacy" means is entirely unnecessary when for one, it's just a heading and two, it's exactly what a legacy is regardless of whether or not he wants it to be. Tobirama probably never intended to be looked down on for creating the Edo Tensei but people curse him for it either way.—Cerez365™ 22:17, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
- Here, everything that happens because of the character or had some lasting effect to others because of the character goes under Legacy. In the case of the First, the Will of Fire, Yamato, and Kabuto's enhancements, all count under the "Legacy" heading. Legacy is the best word we can come up with for such as section because "Post-Death" or something like that sounds very un-encyclopedic.--TheUltimate3 ~Keeper of Lore~ 22:23, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
@Cerez365: I never said that a person's legacy only consists of the positive things. But the difference is, Tobirama actually invented Edo Tensei. Hashirama didn't invent the genetic Wood Release power-ups. So. it's not nitpicking; it's arguing about proper word choice.
@TheUltimate3: Even according to your definition I'm having trouble understanding it. The only "lasting effect to others" that somewhat supports the argument is other people's desire to have Wood Release. But that's like saying that a billionaire's legacy is the fact that a huge number of people envy them (or hate them).
Anyway, I get what you (TheUltimate3) are trying to say. And if there were 3 paragraphs that would describe his actual legacy, and say 3 paragraphs that don't really fit, I probably would not be arguing. Then I'd probably agree that it's the best word we can come up with. But it's 1(!) paragraph about his actual legacy---which is at the end too---and 4(!) paragraphs that talk about the fact that power hungry people desire his Wood Release. It also states that 59 dead children due to Orochimaru's experiments are Hashirama's legacy. Not to mention that the section starts with:
- Because of the legacy of the Senju who are said to be direct descendants of the Sage of the Six Paths and the kekkei genkai that Hashirama possessed, his DNA became highly coveted.
while it actually talks about the heritage of the Senju. Call the section Biological clones and genetic experiments for all I care. Just don't call it something it isn't.--Joolushko Tunai Fenta Hovalis (talk) 00:34, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, arguing over what a section should be called can be deemed nothing but unnecessary nitpicking. It's a simple thing: For all intents and purposes of the wikia, anything that is done/effect a person has on others or plot/anything done with this person's corpse or anything that someone might take from the aforementioned corpse and do with it after the person in question's death be it voluntary or involuntary, purposeful or accidental, falls under the broad, generic heading of "== Legacy ==" I really don't see a reason to be making this into an issue.--Cerez365™ 00:51, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
- Kage was his rank. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 17:29, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
- Kage is a rank not a classification. He was stated to be able to use medical ninjutsu in the manga. Though I am sceptic about whether or not that really made him a medical-nin.
Did not Tsunade create the organization in Konoha/class of a ninja that are known as Medical Ninja ? I remember when she asked the Konoha council to give permission to train such ninja. Thus the term "medical ninja" was used from Tsunade and later on unless Im wrong. Hashirama being able to heal his own wounds does not make him a medical ninja. --Elveonora (talk) 17:53, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
I don't recall that instance particularly well, but what Tsunade wanted was for every team to have a medical-nin. I understood that moment as medical-nin existing, though few in number, and not mandatory to be in every team. She didn't create the category, she just advocated for a greater focus in training and employing medical ninja. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 19:02, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
- Yes she advocated for more of them to be trained and field medics to be added to every team as a way of increasing survival rates. To me it sounds like she revolutionised that aspect of medical ninja(dom O.o) not the idea of medical ninja since there always seemed to be hospitals.--Cerez365™ 19:17, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
But should we list him as a med-nin just cause he could heal himself ? Unless we see him healing others I don't think so ... and even if then, Krain can heal others but she ain't a med-nin. Med-nin is a ninja specialization.--Elveonora (talk) 23:16, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
- I know it's a bit strange, but I don't see any reason not to add him as a med-nin when I think about it. Karin heals people yes, but unlike Hashirama she's never been stated to use medical ninjutsu — which is what a medical nin does regardless of whom it is that they heal. Chiyo for example is a puppeteer but she still falls under the classification "medical-nin" even if it wasn't what she was renown for.--Cerez365™ 23:31, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
i think we're being slightly to hasty when we call him a medical ninja despite what madara said. we have to make the distinction between being a medical ninja ( meaning you could also heal other people) and having regenerative properties (like kurama cloak naruto). so far it has only been stated by madara that "he could heal himself without using handsigns which sounds more like regeneration instead of actual medical ninjutsu.--—This unsigned comment was made by Iowndisciti (talk • contribs) .
- Madara never said anything about regeneration. In the conversation, he berated Tsunade's medical ninjutsu skills while comparing them to Hashirama's techniques (pages 14-15 chpt 576). Just because a medical nin may heal themselves, doesn't mean it's not medical ninjutsu. For all we know Hashirama may (or may not) have used his abilities to heal others. Madara was simply speaking about his battle specifically where four persons were involved — obviously he's not going to heal Kurama and we don't know exactly when Mito arrived on the scene. There are persons who are not main sensory types for example but are classified as such because they have the ability to do so.--Cerez365™ 11:29, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
It's my understanding that the OVA from Naruto Shippuden Storm Generations is considered anime only cannon, as Madara has Wind release from his use of it in the OVA. So my question is, should Contract Seal be added to Hashirama? He appears to use it around the 4:45 mark by the vid I watched of it. Arrancar79 (talk) 02:16, March 12, 2012 (UTC) I'm not sure if this should be listed as an OVA/OAV. It is an original animated video, but it was meant for the game. I'm really not sure how to approach this because a lot of the cutscenes in the game, which were retellings, did not follow the established canon. Diamonddeath (talk) 05:53, March 16, 2012 (UTC)
Strength of a Hundred Technique
- From what I read, Madara said that this technique was similar to Hashirama's ability. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 05:02, March 15, 2012 (UTC)

- I believe Orochimaru's Edo Tensei was flawed or something to that effect as said by Kabuto.--Cerez365™(talk) 10:22, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Is it possible that Hashirama is Tsunade's maternal grandmother? I remember seeing when Tsunade met Hashirama she was baby, there was a woman holding her who bear a great resemblance to Hashirama. I assume that woman is Tsunade's mother, therefore that would make the woman Hashirama's daughter. So does this mean that Hashirama is Tsunade's maternal grand father?--Black Ronin8 (talk) 12:07, July 31, 2012 (UTC)Black Ronin8
- The image you're referring to is inaccurate, that is why it's not used here. Hashirama would have been long since dead before Tsunade was born. As for whether or not he could be her maternal grandfather, yes anything is possible.--Cerez365™(talk) 12:10, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
- She does, I suppose but Mito wouldn't be that old and Hashirama still looking that young however.--Cerez365™(talk) 12:44, July 31, 2012 (UTC)
- I'm afraid to say it's very accurate, Cerez. Why you ask? 'Cause it was shown in the episode where Jiraiya and Naruto found Tsunade and Shizune. --X29 17:20, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- Thank you, Third Lord Admin. In that case, it's not really accurate,. But I'm sure Kishimoto authorized it. --X29 17:48, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the edit Omni, it confuses me when people reply to the middle of a topic. Besides, I don't think it's mentioned in "anime-manga differences" how is it? Not only:
- Hashirama was dead when Tsunade was a baby
- Mito was likely about the same age as him
- The only explanation I can come up with: Mito was aging older due to messed up Uzumaki genes, and Hashirama is there as a ghost.
- Seriously, it's a continuity error and if the lady is supposed to be Mito, it's GROSS as well... I don't think Hashi was into grannies.
- Lady, I meant that Kishi authorized this picture to be allowed, not what your mind thinks of. --X29 17:54, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Uhm, I meant that if Tsunade was alive when Hashirama (who died before the First Shinobi World War) then she'd have to be older than 50. I used to think it was a usable image but Shounensuki discredited the timeline of the image/event.--Cerez365™(talk) 18:49, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- Hiruzen was present during the First Shinobi World War, and he looked like he was in his 20s. And by the time of the series, he was 69. So, Tsunade's age's sounds suitable for me. --X29 18:55, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- I'm not a very big fan of timelining because my brain can't handle it and I do wish that I could find the discussion Shounen had about the image but I haven't been able to. Any way, Tobirama died before SWWI just to note, not during it, which means he could have died when Hiruzen was still a child, so I don't think you can use that as a benchmark for her being around during that time. Still, I dunno.--Cerez365™(talk) 19:24, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- My dear Cerez, my dear Cerez, you're mistaking the two Hokages. Hashirama, the one with the black hair, red armour and with the Wood Style Ninjutsu, is the first Hokage, while Tobirama, the one with the white hair, blue armour and the expert on Water Style Ninjutsu, Kenjutsu (In animé) and Space-Time Ninjutsu, is the second Hokage. Yes, Hashirama died before SWWI, but I'm pretty sure it was before it with a little while, since Hiruzen was alive during the reign of Hashirama, and I'm pretty sure Tobirama's reign wasn't that long. --X29 19:30, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- No, I have my Hokage straight. I don't believe either Hokage ruled for very long because of the era they were in, but I'm referring to this time frame when I say that Hashirama could have died soon after that meaning Tsunade who is almost 20 years younger than Hiruzen(?) would have either been in a womb somewhere at most or not even a thoughtof as yet when her grandfather died.--Cerez365™(talk) 19:42, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- What's with the language?
- I'm a guy, stop hitting on me.
- Hiruzen, Danzo and others were 22-23 during the First Shinobi War.
- The Sannin were almost 52 (late 51) in Part I. and are about 18 years younger than Hiruzen was.
- Tsunade in that image looks 1 year old, Hashirama was long dead during the end of Tobirama's reign.
- Hashirama has died when Hiruzen, Danzo and staff were about 12, and during the time of that Tsunade image, 19 years old.
- Thus Hashirama was dead for like 7 years and according to anime, appeared there as a ghost.--Elveonora (talk) 19:45, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
- Apologies! The username gave me the impression that you were a girl, but it's kinda your fault for not listing yourself as a male. And I wasn't hitting on you in the slightest. And I think Hashirama was alive when she was a kid, but died soon after. As for the language, you should watch your language.The F and C and S words.

- You keep your bird and reptile analogies and anti-perv genes, and I will express in my own way.
- Yeah, it will tear her apart that you are hitting on a guy.
- Yes, but it's not very personal, and it'll help to not cause anymore confusion like this. But I'm not telling you that you must. Just suggesting it to you.
- The canon didn't say anything like that. If it did, I wouldn't be talking about it unless I didn't know of it being mentioned.

He said the same, Hashirama already dead when Tsunade was born. Also the OP, what a retarded logic. The old babe doesn't exist, it's a mistake by the animation team. She is neither Mito (even though she really looks like her for some reason) and how can an old babe be a mother in such old age and have a MUCH younger looking father?--Elveonora (talk) 22:27, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
I see. And he took all that info from databooks and the manga? Interesting. And I'm not saying the old lady holding Tsunade is Mito, although she looks like her, or that she's Tsunade's mum. But if she's Hashirama's daughter, then I guess his healing ability extended to the point where he doesn't look old at all. Not saying it's true, of course. Just speculation, which I won't discuss. --X29 22:46, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Hahahahaha :D Wait... ur right O_o Tsunade mentioned something in reference to Tobi being immortal due to Hashi boob, maybe he had found the answer to aging or something "_" But nope cause as I said, I don't think that Hashirama's daughter would had children in such an advanced age, nor that Hashirama's daughter could look about the same age as his wife even years later after that supposed point in time on that photo. It's obviously a result of the animators not giving a fuck about things such as canon. Topic closed, we had some fun and now we can move along.--Elveonora (talk) 22:52, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Should we remove part about the contract seal now?
Because currently the contract seal is listed as the reason he was able to stop Kurama during his fight against Madara.
But that source is non-canon and has been proven false Madara stated that it was Hashirama's wood dragon and not a contract seal that took control of Kurama from Madara.
It's not even from the anime technically it was just animation made for a video game so no it's not canon.
